Was at Manchester Velodrome on Thursday and went over the handlebars when setting off on a timed lap (cleat seemed to pop out of my left foot, foot went into front wheel and over i went landing on my right shoulder mainly).

Went to A&E yesterday and after an xray the diagnosis was a partially seperated AC joint (you could see the end of the collar bone was lifted slightly in comparison to where it should be, i also have a lump on my shoulder from where its sticking up a bit).

Has anyone had this happen to them and how long before you were able to be back on the bike?
